    Commercial Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at KBR (Houston, TX) in May 2011.

    Interview

    A formal process that selected internally from peers. Resume was reviewed and the interview process personable and appropriate. The interview process included a panel of 3 KBR senior level managers who each asked a series of 2 to 3 questions. The questions were more situation based as opposed to a military style tribunal.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked a series of questions focused on: ethics, behavioral traits, interpersonal skills, finance basics, business administration, strategy, market scenarios.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    The only negotiating point was salary. I was an internal employee so the process would be different than if I had applied externally.
